The Best Stop on the Linden-Lethem Trail

58 MILES, a small village along the Mabura Road in Region 10 (Upper Demerara-Berbice) was virtually unknown over a decade ago, but from then to now, it has been developing into a thriving community.The rustic village surrounded by forest is commonly accessed by the dusty Mabura Road, which leads to Lethem (Upper Takutu-Upper Essequibo), a booming community and the gateway to Guyana from Brazil.

58 Miles has been gradually transforming over the years and today boasts of a gas station, a primary school, a playground with pavilion where villagers converge in the afternoon, a church, an eating house, serving sumptuous dishes of wild meat, and a health centre.
